One is that the cabinet and the speakers weren't designed for it. Most guitar speakers begin to drop off...

In that case, go for it. You really don't need massive woodworking skills and electronics skills are useless. A few small skills to get the frets level and crowned will do you. I'd suggest that you...

If humidity (and rust) is an issue, the coated strings (like Elixirs) are probably your best option.

I've been using studio monitors with a Pod HD quite a bit. My monitors are KRK Rokit 8's -- there's a lot of solid bass (much more than you'd get from the usual 12" guitar speaker) and clean highs...

My experience with 2x12s certainly doesn't match yours. You actually have *reduced* dispersion, so your bandmates won't hear you better.
